We would like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund for their generous funding which has enabled us to undertake this project.

The digitisation and processing of the images was carried out by Clare Bradley Smith, who has also been responsible for the initial data entry and the design of the web pages.

Further research and data entry has been undertaken by Steve Cafferty and Charlie Jarvis, who have also provided much of the introductory material as well as acting in an advisory capacity for the Project as a whole.

Anne Hume designed and developed the search pages for the database, and Rob Huxley has acted as overall Project Manager.
